Raleigh, N.C. — Most of central North Carolina experienced temperatures in the mid to upper 70s on Sunday, WRAL Meteorologist Kim Deaner said.
The high of 74 degrees at Raleigh-Durham International Airport tied the record for the day set in 1988. In Wilmington, the high of 76 degrees set a record.
Some light rain and clouds are expected Monday morning, but by late afternoon the sun should be out, Deaner said. Highs are expected in the upper 50s – above average for this time of year. Lows overnight Monday were forecast to be in the mid-30s.
